I’D BE AN OUTLAW

  • I’D be an outlaw brave and bold
  • Rather than have a house of gold!
  • Better than learning rules and verbs
  • To be a wild witch charming herbs,
  • But ah! indeed we’re always told
  • Men do not now as once of old:—
  • And she’s the truest heroine
  • Whose heart is steadfast and serene,
  • Who does not grumble, but sits still
  • And learns her lessons with a will:—
  • This is the best, the only way
  • To grow brave for some greater day!
